Trump Comes Out Swinging On "Fake News"

Posted on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 14:23 PM

U.S. President Donald Trump is pulling no punches in denouncing a report about him published by Buzz Feed and picked up by other news organisations.

It claims the Russians have information that's compromising and could be used to blackmail him.

Trump calls it "fake news" put together by opponents to his Presidency and condemns Buzz Feed as "a pile of garbage".

The President Elect says he is always warning his people to be careful when they travel outside the U.S. because there are cameras everywhere. As an aside, Trump described himself as a germaphobe which elicited laughter because it was in reference to a particularly salacious section in the report.

Trump's lawyer Micheal Cohen says the claims in the report are false and the Buzz Feed document is fabricated.
